I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

MFKR 2014 Day 1

MFKR 2014 Swag
The swag this year was very good as always.  We actually had a choice of getting a bag, a back pack or a shopping bag.  One skein of American Brand yarn and a wonderful pattern book.

Charan Sachar a  local artisan and potter, donated these wonderful dishes so that we let our stitch markers rest while we knit or crochet. Charan has a full line of ceramics that are to die for.  Yarn bowls, coffee mugs, glasses and plates.  He has a shop and a blog link provided below,

MFKR 2014 fun (1) 
Every year for a while we have had a silent auction from items donated.  You can see my two bears at the end.  The donations help fund the MFKR scholarship fund.  The scholarship allows the group to help  2 or more candidates assist the MFKR with some financial help.  I was glad to be able to contribute to the MFKR with my bears.  The first day is about meeting people and getting settled.  The fisrt class will begin soon after dinner, it is Learning to spin using a drop spindle by Aaron Bush and Michael Wade.  Tomorrow is day two, don't you miss it.  Thanks for stopping by!
